Welcome to my Fab Academy website. My name is James Rutter and I work as the Fab Lab & Technology Director for Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. I also recently received my Ph.D. in STEM Education and work as a research scientist for the University of Virginia on a NSF funded project, Make to Learn.

I am currently going through this course independently here in Deer Isle, Maine using a combination of Haystack’s facilities and a home lab I have setup this past year. I am a remote student with the group at Charlotte Latin: Special thanks to Tom Dubick, David Taylor, and Terence Fagan for all the support and feedback throughout the course.
